BEST HOLIDAY WISHES TO YOU FROM ARTS ORANGE COUNTY!
Downtown Santa Ana Wins National Grant for Arts Project
The International Downtown Association and Springboard for the Arts have selected Downtown Santa Ana among six creative placemaking projects it is funding with $5,000 seed grants around the nation. The others are in Chandler, AZ; Tempe, AZ; New Haven, CT; Oklahoma City OK; and Memphis, TN. These projects will take place in the spring of 2017 and are scaled to support local artists' work in creating more vibrant and engaging local business districts. The Santa Ana project is called "The Calliotree" and will comprise a partnership among Downtown Santa Ana, a renowned local artist and creative engineer, two local schools, and the City of Santa Ana to reintegrate a community landmark into the public realm. The artist will adapt digital infrastructure onto a 30-foot tall dying sycamore tree (a historic local landmark) to transform it into a programmable audio-visual art piece that acts as a giant musical instrument for anyone to play.
